‘KSPⅢ Policy Consulation for Sri Lanka’s Green Urban Infrastructure Development



About: KSPⅢ Policy Consultation for Green Urban Infrastructure Development—Focusing on Solid Waste Management in Sri Lanka
Date: March 30 – April 6, 2015
At: Korea Research Institute for Human Settlements, Anyang, Korea

From March 30 to April 6, 2015, the Land Management and Urban Research Division at Korea Research Institute for Human Settlements (KRIHS) held a policy consultation program for Sri Lanka. The program, entitled “Policy Consultation for Green Urban Infrastructure Development—Focusing on Solid Waste Management in Sri Lanka,” was organized as part of the Knowledge Sharing Program managed by the Ministry of Strategy and Finance. Nine policy makers from environmental authorities and officials in charge of solid waste management participated in the program, including Mr. K. H. Muthukuda Arachchi, Director General of Central Environment Authority in Sri Lanka. 
The program included lectures, site visits, business meetings, research reviews and discussions. The subjects of the lectures varied from Korea’s waste management, waste management policies in Seoul and the city government’s conflict management strategies to “sustainable solid waste management” for tropical regions, which particularly corresponded to the needs of the participants. The participants visited Anyang Resource Recovery Facility, Yeongdeungpo Waste Recycling Center, Sudokwon Landfill site management Corporation, Hanam Environment Infrastructure Plant, municipal solid waste treatment plant in Asan, and Korea Environment Corporation, to look and learn Korea’s experience in waste management. After having a session to review the research outcomes and current conditions of waste management in Sri Lanka, the participants of both parties discussed policy direction for Sri Lanka’s waste management.
